Notes related to handling some comments/conversation on a Github pull request alvin August 4, 2019 - 6:40pm

Here are some brief notes related to handling some comments on a Github pull request. Every other pull request I’ve done has been simply accepted, but I’m currently working through a conversation related to a large pull request. Here are the notes:

git fetch wasn’t showing the comments/changes I just approved on Github, but this set of commands successfully pulled those changes from Github and brought them onto my system:

git branch                      #to list the branches
git checkout my-branch-name     #switch to my branch
git pull origin my-branch-name
How-to: Steps to create a Github pull request (git branch, etc.) alvin July 30, 2019 - 7:13pm

I haven’t worked on many open source projects, so my ability to fork a Github project, pull it down, create a branch, push that branch back, and then submit a pull request are weak, at best.

That being said, I’ve done it a few times lately, so I’m getting better at it. Today was a very smooth process, so I thought I’d make these notes while they’re still fresh in my mind.
